SC Freiburg is in the quarterfinals of the DFB Cup.
The Bundesliga representative won 2-0 (0-0) at second division club SV Sandhausen, an own goal by Hamadi El Ghaddioui (87th minute) and a goal by Nils Petersen (90+5) made the difference.
The cup finalists of the previous year were the footballingly superior team right from the start, SV Sandhausen mainly ran behind - but successfully: Sandhausen came into the duels, Freiburg's top striker Michael Gregoritsch only got a few, small chances (5th / 37th). .
Lukas Kübler narrowly missed the best opportunity of the first half with a header (41').
So the hosts deserved the draw at the break despite only 60 percent of the passes being received.
And the second division team didn't necessarily have to defend themselves against a rush by Christian Streich's team after the break, even if the shots came closer: Matthias Ginter headed the ball just wide of the goal again after a corner kick (55'), a Gregoritsch header didn't go far past the goal either (62').
You strike late again
For the third time this season, Freiburg proved to be specialists in scoring: SCF only scored the four goals of the two previous rounds of the cup after the 82nd minute.
This time it was defender Philipp Lienhart who irritated El Ghaddioui so much a few minutes before the end of the game that Sandhäuser deflected the ball into his own goal (87').
In injury time, Noah Atubolu, who represented Mark Flekken in the SCF goal, was able to distinguish himself for the first time and held on to the lead against David Kinsombi (90+5), which substitute Petersen extended with the last action: a slipped pass from Sandhausen Goalkeeper Patrick Drewes, the striker flicked technically demanding from almost 20 meters into the corner.
